Racktacular event to help individuals with breast cancer
Rock and roll and breasts....what could be better ?
Just heard about an event in MPLS this Friday ....RACKTACULAR .
You can read about more details on this cool blog...(copy and past, can't get my links button to work anymore...arrrggg)....
It was a bit last minute for me, but I threw together a donation box for the auction and thought I would include some pictures that I rushed to make before I got it into the mail .
I don't have any idea what else will be in the auction but can tell you a bit about what I sent...
-An alien pod needle felt necklace
-a "Stop calling people from other countries aliens=one world" necklace
with a metal earth, tiny alien and "homey" on leather cord
-a hand knit pinkish sweater re-purpose as a neck warmer (with fleece lining, vintage button (I think it's wool and mohair but not sure as their was no tag .
-Beaded suede bag for clubbing...can wear around neck, hands free dancing
-Clip on needle felt bag with peacock colors and vintage button
-driftwood look needle felt slip on bracelet
-re-purposed , beaded fringe collar necklace
I sent some of my funkier items because I was told that many of the attendees are
in the fashion business and thought they wouldn't mind some items that aren't exactly "traditional" . I once again did a lousy job being "business minded", as I didn't have time to add any professional looking labels (don't have any...yet), but did throw in a few business cards so maybe someone will come visit my Etsy store. To bad I still don't have any of my felt items listed there for them to look at..... (Gosh...businessy stuff is hard .)
